Not really. PF is UNIQUE music. Much of it is not even rock. Trying to label some bands is silly. First solo in CN is in a major key, second is in a minor key. Many bands can't even swing that.
I think that is what makes the solos so great. The first solo is pretty simple in a major key that just soars and lifts us up. The second solo drops into a minor with a ton of mood and anger. A very schizophrenic song - this is what makes it such a compelling tune. Is it rock? Does it matter?I like how Roger Waters singing parts are in a minor key,
and then Gilmour's counterparts are major.
It's the simple thangs.
Though I greatly admire David Gilmour, his band sailed right over my head.
They rocketh not.
I greatly prefer soft rock.
PF = boring stoner music, IMO.
I greatly prefer exciting stoner music.
David Gilmour is a prince among men, though.
He donated a pile of money to build a homeless shelter.
Thanks for listening.
Forget the band and forget the context? You could do that to many songs. There's probably a few minutes of a Metallica song that is yacht rock or part of some Eagles song that is heavy metal.
